Dutch crackdown on Muslim terror: Netherlands backs law to strip jihadis of citizenship

THE Dutch senate has voted to strip jihadis of their Dutch citizenship as the Netherlands steps up its fight against terror.

The upper house approved the law allowing the government in the interest of national security to revoke the Dutch citizenship of militants fighting abroad with terror groups.

Members of ISIS and Al Qaeda with dual nationality attempting to return from fighting in areas such as Syria and Iraq will not be allowed back into the Netherlands.

Dutch lawmakers said jihadists will also be unable to legally enter the Schengen zone.
